Brother CE 7070PRW Sewing Machine

At 850 stitches per minute, the Brother CE 7070PRW sewing machine is an impressive model when it comes to speed. The Brother CE 7070PRW is known for its accuracy and good stitch quality, even when working through layers of fabric or heavier materials. 7 automatic one-step button-hole styles allow for variety in clothing and other projects and are above the average when compared to other models in this price range.

The Brother CE 7070PRW sewing machine offers 70 different stitch patterns which is more than some competitor units offer and the options range from basic stitches for clothing to more decorative stitches needed for detailed projects. Also included are heirloom stitches and quilting stitches for more delicate and detailed work as and when required.

Needle plate marking on the Brother CE 7070PRW sewing machine gives you the ability to keep your lines straight and at the right distance for your project. However, there is no needle up/down option.

Brother CE 7070PRW – Design

The standard features of this unit include a sewing light, free arm, and a built-in thread cutter. A wide extension table lets you work on larger projects with ease. However, this model does not run by a start/stop button, but rather it is run by a floor pedal.

An easy load, automated drop in bobbin winder makes it easy to get started on your project. The Brother CE 7070PRW sewing machine also comes with an automatic needle threader that takes care of your threading with the touch of a button, saving you time and energy that can be directed toward the project. A button for reverse stitching is also included.

The LCD display shows stitch patterns and messages when there is an error. Stitch type and setting are selected on the easy-to-read screen. A built in LED light provides illumination to the work space when working in low lit areas or when working with darker fabrics. This unit is lightweight and portable, weighing in at only 13 pounds, yet the motor is powerful enough to move through even heavier materials.

Brother CE 7070PRW – Accessories

The Brother 7070PRW comes with several accessories, though not as many as other units reviewed in this category. Accessories include 7 presser feet, a needle set, a seam ripper, spool caps, screwdrivers, and a cleaning brush.
